Put On The Gloves: Photo Highlights

 Thanks to everyone who came out in full force to support Put on the Gloves!!!!!

The  event  was filled with hundreds of people who were ready to take a stand against bullying of the LGBT Youth. Put on the Gloves is dedicated to raising awareness of and eliminating bullying's powerful role in the lives of our youth. POTG is a double entendre that represents literally putting on your gloves for prom but also putting on your fighting gloves and standing up for yourself and our youth. The shows beneficiaries' are the Trevor Project and the Capital Queer PromThe event was co-hosted by Emmy award winning reporter and Fox 5 news anchor Will Thomas and Anji Corley of WPGC 95.5.

Nobody made a dime off of the event--- and as show organizer Elaine Mensah said, "That says a lot in this city." But the issues and the cause were so important, that everyone came out (despite not so great weather) in full force and made sure that this event was a huge success. 

Attendees at the event
Everyone came together to support this important cause.
I am pictured with french model and actor who strutted the runway taking a stance against bullying!

A certain  Real Housewife was in attendance.
And this housewife says she is all too familiar with bullying!





Grammy award winning artist Mya came out  to perform and support!

Stay tuned for my interview with Mya.

Mya performed her new single live on stage -- "Love is the Answer" and she also threw in a little old school "Ghetto Superstar."

I think Mya sang it best. Love is the answer. Nobody deserves to be bullied. So take a stand and Put on the Gloves! 

Special thanks to Designer Betsy Garcete of for outfitting me in my spectacular dress.
